This Week in TV 2.0

The week has come and gone and I have had my 10-15 minutes of fame on various programmes all in the hope to raise a little bit more awareness for an illness that is slowly beating me. It has been great to get all the feedback from everyone, and a little surreal to see yourself on TV. The breakfast interview really only served to illustrate how much I slouch! 🙂

For those who missed the segments and would like to see them, I have listed them below. Today (friday) is round 32 chemotherapy so I will apologise in advance for those who have commented and for whom a reply is deserved as I am generally not too functional over the next few days. I will try to get to them in due course.

20/20 – Sitting on a Killer

One News Segment

Breakfast Interview – This Breakfast Interview requires clicking on the 5th segment of the programme, and then scrolling towards the end. I was the final interview of the day. It pays to let it buffer a bit before you move the video to the end.

Once again, Thanks to all those who have commented and supported Hannah and myself over the past 2 1/2 years, lets hope that I might be blessed to get another 2 1/2 years of life, or maybe even more.

    Hi Jared,

    I have seen last night 20/20 featuring you and Claire it was moving.

    I am very hopeful that there exist an alternative energy therapy that
    stop cancel cell to grow.

    If you are interested to know more about it . Just mail me back.

    This therapy is from India.. You don’t need to go over there.

    You could scientifically monitor that is the beauty of it.

    Hi Jared,

    I saw the 20/20 programme last night and I thought you and Claire spoke well and from the heart. I know this will have encouraged and inspired others. Thank you for your honesty and to Hannah also for sharing your journey with us. Love and blessings, M

    Just caught up with your blog again after hearing friends at homegroup talking about your appearance at Easter Camp. We had a fascinating discussion about your journey and how we can learn from it. The 20/20 episode had me in tears at the end. Kia kaha, T

    I was so blown away by the positive feel you gave to the 20/20 story. Even though you are tackling a monster of a challenge you are living your life in a way that many people who have their health don’t!
    As someone who has had non- remission Crohn’s disease for the past five years and as a result now am minus my colon & a further metre of small bowel I owe big gratitude to you and Claire for sharing your message on a part of the body that is a challenge to draw public medical knowledge & attention to. It’s such an taboo area to talk about yet is so common in terms of cancers and other related disorders.
    I wish you both all the very best for the future although seeing the two of you together and the humour and love you approach everything with I not sure you need it!

      Hey Liz, Thanks for your comment. Crohn’s disease is not fun to have. I know a few people with it myself, and have also helped look after a number of patients with it as well. So I am familiar with the kind of journey you have with it. I hope you doing okay, and i’m glad I was able to help encourage you.
